Dont Book with Costa if you only speak Englsh and dont smoke
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
When we reached Naples it was raining, there were no porters to take our cases, it was like a rugby scum not very good after over five hour trip. Cannot blame Costa for weather but their lack of communication to the English was very poor.
Check in, again a shambles two desks open for over a hundred passengers.
We got on board and what we found was cigarette smoke everywhere. It was awful the smokers just More ignored the few no smoking signs and puffed away.
Costa do not cater for English speaking, all the announcements were often enough not in English. We had BBC World on the tv for two days and even that was taken off. You had to pay to watch films in either the cinema or in your cabin I was on the Costa Serena two years ago and comparing the two there is no comparison. Even the Captain couldn't be bothered to come to the Costa Club cocktail !
Every port we came too passengers got off to be replaced by more mostly Italians and French. The Costa Serena is the biggest ferry the Med. The only good thing about my cruise was the staff. The numbers have clearly been cut so they are working harder.
Most of the Britsh passengers I spoke to swore they wouldn't go on a Costa cruise again, I certainly wont they just does not cater for us. Less
The cabin was adequate.
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
Lots of fun, but probably won'...
Worse ever cruise ship!
